Raku Tatami Platform Bed
The Raku Tatami Platform Bed is the embodiment of Japanese simplicity and harmony in design. Pair with Tatami Mats and a Shiki Futon for and clean and authentic sleep experience.
In Japan, Raku can be translated as "Comfort” or “Simple Comfort", and our Japanese Tatami platform bed is the perfect expression of simple comfort. Simple as in, easy to set up and enjoy, comfort as in, lay back, and relax. Embodying the Zen principles of simplicity in style, and in harmony with nature, our unique line of Japanese style contemporary platform beds incorporate design themes that are both comfortable to the senses and pleasing to the eye.
In addition, the Raku Tatami Platform beds are an Eco- Friendly product. What this means is that the Raku Tatami Bed is constructed in a manner that is less harmful to the environment than many other furniture products on the market today. To begin with, the Raku bed is made from solid Para wood and does not contain any particle board or chipboard and the whole list of toxic compounds associated with that type of construction. In addition, Para wood is a sustainably produced wood, meaning wood that is farmed and managed as opposed to wood sourced from virgin forests.

To prevent cracking and warping of the wood, the Raku is constructed with solid blocks of Para wood bonded together with non-toxic wood glue on finger joints so the rails can flex along the glue lines with changes in temperature and humidity, and then finished with an inert stain and lacquer finish. The finger joints can add a unique look to the lighter natural finish, but blends into a more uniform look on the honey oak and dark walnut finishes. The solid para wood and inert, non-toxic finishes do not off-gas fumes into the sleeping environment like acrylic and polyethylene stains or MDF (medium density fiberboard) and result in a healthier night’s rest.
And lastly, the bed frame does not use any nails, screws, or steel dowels for assembly. Instead, the corners are joined together by means of an ingenious slot-locking system that is simple, sturdy, and easy to put together and take down. The middle rail does utilize steel bolts to secure the middle legs and rail to the bed frame creating a strong and extra sturdy foundation for the natural finished, solid wood slats, upon which the Tatami mats are placed.

The eco-friendly properties of the Raku can be further bolstered by the use of Tatami grass mats as a replacement for a box spring (grass mats sold separately). Placed on the slat platform structure of the Raku bed, our Tatami mats are the ideal surface upon which to place a latex, memory foam, or futon mattress, or any style of mattress, even a Shiki Sleeping Mat. The Tatami mats eliminate the need for a box spring. Overall, regardless of whether or not you choose to utilize Tatami mats, the Raku bed is an essential element of our Total Sleep Care System that promotes harmonious rest in the home.
